oh wow team's offenses were so stagnant as inferior players tried to emulate MJ's style of isolation play and the streetball style that AI brought to the league. The West had the Jailblazers, Kings, but mostly it was the Shaq Attack.

the big 3 mavs may have been the most talented. They were just a sieve on defense. Milwaukee was very good for just a year, kind of overlooked. They didnt play that isolation style either

Bulls would win but it be a good series. Bulls defence would be to much for the warriors. The rockets the last couple of years have caused problems for warriors mostly with there defence funny enough. The bulls were much better defensively than Houston. They could go with a small ball defensive death lineup of pip, rod, harper, mj and toni that would give the warriors alot of trouble. Pip would keep kd under 30. Mj would shut down Klay and Steph would get his but he'd be his normal sub par finals self. Bulls in 6

And the current Warriors aren't nearly as good as they were in 2017. When I think MJ's Bulls vs the Durant-Curry Warriors I think it's best to compare the versions where they were at their very best.

Bulls can't hit threes, that would be their downfall. I said it in another thread, the Bulls would be an outdated team if you put them in the modern era, no spacing, no 3 point shooting besides Kerr.

It's one of the reasons why Phil Jackson got canned in New York, he thought the league was still in 1996, when in fact the league had already evolved without him knowing.

Again they would win with there defence. In the games that Houston won last year before cp got hurt they held the rockets to very low scores. I think they only had one game above 100. In 2016 when the warriors lost to Cleveland it was the same thing. Warriors probably averaged low 90's in the losses.

The bulls were much better than both of those teams defensively. they could easily hold the warriors to 85-95 points for the majority of the games.

And no the triangle didn't work in New York but you still have to have the players for it to be successful. The triangle would totally work if you had Kobe and Shaq or mj and pip. Almost any system will work when you have players like thag

You are only using a 2 game sample, in games 1 & 3 (When Warriors had Iggy), the Warriors dropped 119 points and 126 points.


And the 2018 Warriors weren't nearly as good as their 2017 version.

What about 2016? Most warrior fans claim this team led by Steph to be just as good as the current one.

wow... they're over. BTW the 96 Bulls probably fielded the tallest starting five of all time.

Remember when you thought the NBA had a short 3 point line for only 2 seasons during the 90's?

WTF? They weren't even taller than the Magic. Rodman is undersized.
